Very nice property in Keswick

  • 4 of 5

Ideal property for our short 3 day stay in the Lakes. Good size rooms for 3-4 people and well provided with everything you could want - including a bottle of wine on arrival - ta for that!. It is an easy 20 minute stroll into Keswick which builds a good hunger for eating and drinks in any of the many great pubs in the town centre - Wainwrights was our particular favourite. Would definitely stay here again - Really easy to get around for walking in many parts of the lakes from this well positioned accommodation

Fantastic House in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable, clean and very well equipped. It's 20mins walk from town which is perfect. A lovely touch having a bottle of wine to greet us when we arrived. The garage is perfect for storing bikes in. We really enjoyed our stay and will be visiting again later in the year.

Modern, Clean, What it says on the tin.

  • 5 of 5

Great little house. Outskirts of Keswick with walks and pubs nearby. Even a bottle waiting for us when we got there, a lovely touch. Newly refurbished bathroom and kitchen (or near enough) with comfy sofas in the main room and good wifi.

Great value accomodation

  • 5 of 5

A great find! We have been coming to the Keswick area every year for some time now but this year the cottage we normally rent was fully booked so we had to find somewhere else - and we're really glad we did! This is a really clean, comfortably furnished and well equipped house with plenty of space for our family of four (our children are 6 and 9) and it represents extremely good value for money. The house has a lovely garden, ample parking and is in a great location too, with fast and easy access to the Grasmere / Ambleside road, Borrowdale, the A66 and Keswick itself.

It was lovely to stay somewhere where we could walk into central Keswick (we had always stayed further out in the past). We thoroughly enjoyed the 20 minute walk along the railway path into town and discovered Fitz park for the first time en route. The kids enjoyed playing in the park while we enjoyed a very reasonably priced cup of coffee and cake in the cafe there.

The house was perfect for us: the kitchen had everything we needed (well, except tea towels perhaps) and the dining area was very light and spacious. There were plenty of books, DVDs, walking books and maps in the cupboard and we enjoyed poring over the big relief map on the wall in the evenings to trace where we had walked that day!

The bedrooms were a great size with plenty of storage and the beds were supremely comfortable. Our children loved the quirky sheep curtains in the bedrooms too.

Having the garage and Spar so close by was yet another plus point.

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely house and we will most definitely book again.

Great little house!

  • 5 of 5

We found the property very easily........set back from the main road, it felt very quiet and safe. Once inside, it was lovely.....the small kitchen was particularly well-supplied with good quality cutlery and tableware. We even had a freezer in the garage which we weren't expecting!!

We used the near-by Spar shop regularly and found the parking disc useful when we drove into Keswick......we also used it in Penrith when we visited.

We loved the back garden which we used quite a lot because we were really lucky and got gorgeous hot weather for our stay.

Although we didn't use them, there is an ample supply of dvds, books,colouring books and maps available to guests.

The bathroom looked like it had recently been re-fitted........lovely over-bath shower with good pressure and lots of instant hot water!!

We had a wonderful stay and would not hesitate to recommend this holiday home to anyone who wishes to visit Keswick.....we hope to return!!

An excellent base. Clean, quiet and cosy. We would use again

  • 5 of 5

The house was very good. Two bedrooms and a nice sized living room. A short walk into Keswick (15mins) makes it a great base for a Lake District break. Although on a main road the property is sat far enough back from the road to make it a quiet retreat. Great sized garden over 3 levels gives even more space and there is enough parking for 2 large and 1 smaller car. We would stay again
